Class of 2016 Spotlight - Phillip Morse

Class of 2016 Spotlight - Phillip Morse

WINCHESTER, Va. - We start our look at the Class of 2016 this Friday by meeting star baseball pitcher Phillip Morse.

Major(s):
Criminal Justice and Minor in Coaching 
 
Sport(s) Played: 
Baseball 
 
Why did you choose Shenandoah? 
I chose SU because of the academics first. I loved the small class size and wanted to develop relationships with my professors instead of being just another person in a big classroom at a big University! SU also has a great Criminal Justice program which also was part of my decision to come to SU! Secondly, to be able to play the sport I Iove at the next level was a dream come true! Coach Anderson has been not just only a great coach but someone who really develops relationships with his players and always has our backs! To be able to achieve two dreams in getting a great degree and playing baseball is a blessing!! 
 
Favorite Class and Professor: 
My favorite classes were with Dr. Carla Miller and those were Sociology, Race and Crime, Criminal Theory, and Juvenile Delinquency! Dr. Millers classes were very debate based and to be able to interact with other students and her as well in talking about current events was really cool! To hear the opinions of others and learn from that as well is also really cool! 
 
What do you like most about playing sports at SU? 
Playing baseball at SU is awesome! The history behind our team and those who already came through and built the program to where it is now makes playing for the best program at school even better! To also be the first team at SU to win an ODAC Tournament was beyond cool! The next step for us is to win a regional and a World Series and with it being my last year, we hope to do all three next spring! 
 
Favorite thing to do in Winchester: 
Favorite thing to do in Winchester besides double headers on the weekends is to hangout with my friends and experience downtown Winchester! There is so much history to see and a ton of restaurants to eat at so that's probably the best things to do in Winchester! 
 
Favorite SU Athletics Memory: 
Favorite SU athletic memory was winning the ODAC Tournament! We were in the championship last year and lost both games which was devastating but to win it this year with the nine seniors we had was the best! Also to be able to win it with my little brother Colin brought back awesome memories from when we played little league ball together and won many championships! I'm definitely Looking forward to what next season will bring! 
 
What has playing athletics at SU meant to you? 
It's a dream come true! Very few can say they got to play the sport they grew up playing in college! It's even better when your a part of a great program and the best team at school! Playing with Colin has been a blessing because I get to play two more seasons and probably the last two of our lives together! I have developed friendships that will last a lifetime as well! 
 
Post-Graduate Plans: 
I want to see where I can go with playing baseball at the next level wherever but with my criminal justice degree I want to follow the footsteps of my dad who was a Capital Police officer for 28 years, the last five with him being the Chief of USCP! I'm looking at a few different agencies such as Fairfax County, Virginia State Police, Metropolitan Police, Capital Police, and Prince George's County Police.
 
Nobody knows that I... 
...am a Ghost Adventures addict! Fell in love with the show in High School and have become a believer of ghosts or spirits in the afterlife! To see some of the evidence regardless if its real or fake is pretty cool! Secondly, I wouldn't say people don't know and a lot have seen but I'm probably the best hip hop dancer on the baseball team! Whenever a good song comes on between innings or one of our guys walk up songs keep a look out for me because I'll probably be doing the trending dance move such as the whip, drop or nae nae! I got to show my moves at the 2015 Apple Blossom dances where you could say the spotlight was on me the whole night!
